The Las Vegas Athletic Club (LVAC) because it is open 24 hours and there is lots of eye candy.
What are some great restaurants for a night out with gay friends there?
Las Vegas does not have many gay restaurants. A fun restaurant is at the top of The Rio called The Voodoo Lounge - you can see the whole city. Also the Top Of The World at The Stratosphere is very romantic and my friend Mark is the Food and Beverage Manager so the service is always spot on.
What are some great restaurants for a romantic gay date? What about these restaurants appeals to you?
The Steak House at The Bellagio is fabulous because you can watch the dancing water show. Ask for Robert Andrich to be your waiter he also a dear friend.

Town Square is the new favorite hang for checking out peeps. Sit outside on the terrace of TRIO and you will see some craziness go by.
Are there any famous people from your town?
Lots including the not so famous like Kristine W LOL. My neighbour is Pink's man - Corey Hart. And of course, Las Vegas is home to the infamous entertainer, Wayne Newton. He lives on Sunset Road. A lot of artists are moving to Las Vegas or have second homes and spend a lot of time here.

Spalsh in NYC is my favorite because it has the real New York vibe. I played it last week and had a blast.

Anywhere they want these days.

They know how to have fun here that is for sure. I have a lot of gay and straight friends in Vegas and they all hang out together.

Not a ridiculous notion - They actually all hang out together especially at Charlie's for some reason.

Does your town have a LGBT pride celebration? Do you usually attend?
Yes They have a great pride but I am always booked somewhere else. I have performed twice and had a blast.

Every Pride is fun. The downside is none of the hot guys are interested in this straight girl. LOL

I shop everywhere for clothes and I call my style "Slap It." Which means "Slap It together and go".
Where do you go for other forms of entertainment -- live theater, concerts, movies, art exhibits? Are there any local gay performance groups, bands, or artists that you're a fan of?
